    50 People Shared The Most Awkward Date They've Ever Been On, And WHEW, The Secondhand Embarrassment

    "Our waiter asked, 'Are you the chick from OnlyFans?'”

    Every now and then, you find a Twitter thread that keeps you scrolling through the replies for hours, and today I came across an absolute gem. One user asked the internet, "What's the most awkward date y'all ever been on?" And I can't stop laughing at the responses. Here are some of the most liked stories:

    1.

    @NateIsBack2 I walked in and the guy said, “I must have been drunk.” He also kept asking if HE physically gave me his number or one of his friends. And through the rest of the date he just kept shaking his head saying, “I had to have been drunk.”

    @NateIsBack2 His family owned/ran a funeral home. Did not have an issue with that, but he spent the later part of dinner telling me what kind of makeup techniques he would use on me if I died.

    His tag was hanging out his top so I pulled it off. The look on his face told the story of a man of who had intended on returning that £350 T-shirt and no longer could. He didn’t smile for the rest of the date and I never heard from him again. https://t.co/oIOxay7m5S

    @NateIsBack2 He was older. Good looking but old enough to be my dad lol. We were sitting on the restaurant’s patio on these sofas having drinks. He wanted to take shots. I could tell he was lit so I was like nah. We took 2. I went to the restroom & came back this man was sleep on the sofa. 😭

    @NateIsBack2 Went to get wings with a man that was taking all of the chicken off the bone with his hand, balling it up, and then shoving it in his mouth. Man ordered like 30 wings... with the bone...............

    The menu said the burger was served “Medium” he goes “nah I want it Large”. I explained that’s not what it meant but he proceeded to request a large from the waiter anyway 😣 https://t.co/MRCh1sG5BK

    @NateIsBack2 I was 19. The moment I saw him I almost did a Grandpa Simpson because he'd told me he was 28 but like....he obviously was not. He saw me before I could leave. After 15 awkward minutes he said he was actually 45.

    @NateIsBack2 Went to this really nice bar in Bowel Heights with this person from HS... danced salsa and had a couple of beers. Went back to the car, dude starts snorting coke and tells me "your son was supposed to be my son. I'm claiming him as mine now" (weird as F**K) also said "I LOVE YOU"

    @NateIsBack2 He was late, rude, and then asked where my sister at, since I wasn't having a good time. He told the waitress to split the bill, he had drinks and a appetizer. I had water. I stormed out front of his bar friends (he was a regular there). He had a newborn that same night.

    @NateIsBack2 Dated a girl who owned a python. One time she asked me to take her to the pet store where she bought a couple white mice, smashed them against the ground, then fed the dying mice to the snake. Cause it was too lazy to eat them if they were uninjured. That was about it for us.

    @NateIsBack2 We "bumped" into her pastor on our date and the man said to me "I sense in the spirit that there are demons tormenting you and they will never allow you to have a partner". The girl went to the toilet and never came back. She's married to the pastor now, I'm so happy for them.

    A man took me to a bar, but instead of buying me a drink, he told me he had a bottle of Crown Royal in the car. He basically wanted us to go back and fourth from the car for drinks, and inside for the music. https://t.co/dpm52MYArT

    @NateIsBack2 Shortest date ever. He picks me up, I get in the car & he compliments me on my hair. Then he asks if it’s real 😑 when I decline to answer, he turns on the interior light & starts inspecting. “Wait, turn your head let me see” SIR!! You know what..this ain’t gone work. Good night

    @NateIsBack2 I went on a date with a dude who was a lot shorter then me. I’m 5’11 and he was 5’5. He asked me to step off the sidewalk and walk in the street so I wouldn’t make him look so short. He was dead serious. I actually liked him but never spoke to him again after that day.

    @NateIsBack2 When i was a teenager, this boy cooked me dinner at his house. It was lovely. Then his dad came home and told me about the terrible date he had. He described the woman and a few key details. I sat up straighter and asked the name of his date. It was my mom.

    @NateIsBack2 On a first date I went on a sunset hike with this guy. On our way back down the mountain we get lost, phones on 1%, guy calls his mom who tells us to call 911. 911 sends a rescue team to walk us down. Next day we end up in the local paper

    @NateIsBack2 Dinner. She mirrored my every movement. If I took a bite, so did she. If I used my napkin, she followed suit. I eventually noticed, so I tested her by randomly sliding my drink from one end of the table to the other. Without skipping a beat...her drink slid across the table too.

    @NateIsBack2 Longtime friend and I on a first date: We went on a day trip to Catalina Island and for some reason, decided to tandem parasail. While we were strapped together hovering in the air above a boat... he got sick. We had purchased the photo package.

    @NateIsBack2 The one where I was fidgety during a movie bc I was so nervous and I stuck my arm down the cup holder and couldn’t get it back out. My date had to get the theater manager and they put butter from the popcorn on my arm to grease it up so it would slide out. Mortifying.

    @NateIsBack2 Drinks & dancing were great, but when we got back to his apt he pulled out a suitcase full of magic tricks. Already slightly unsettled, he showed me a few & the last trick he made his thumb disappear. Asked him how he did it. He was just missing his thumb.

    @NateIsBack2 Started talking to a girl online. Vibing pretty good. She invites me over. Things are going well. She takes me into her bedroom, where I discover she's LITERALLY A NAZI. Like, room is COVERED in Nazi regalia. She claimed to "just like the style, not the philosophy," but come on.

    @NateIsBack2 He spent almost 30 minutes complaining about women, and why they shouldn't be in the workforce because they 'take too many bathroom breaks'. He told me he sat outside his office's bathroom and TIMED women entering and exiting. I stood up and left when he got to that part.

    @NateIsBack2 A guy brought his 3 y/o daughter on our first date. She practically sat in my lap the whole meal. When I got up to leave, he tried to talk me into going back to his house. I declined & he then got his kid to try to convince me. She said “🥺 I don’t have a mommy.” 😳#Ghosted #Nope

    @NateIsBack2 It’s quite a long story but short version is he said his childcare canceled last minute so brought his son and said had to go back to his place for a sec and would I ride along. Get there, then he disappears to go “buy diapers” and I was stuck with his toddler for 2 hours.

    @NateIsBack2 A dude who showed up late, talked incessantly about topics I could’ve contributed a LOT to had he ever let me speak. About 45 minutes in he said “so what do you like to talking about, hair?” & I said “not usually with a bald man, no”. I ended it pretty abruptly after that.
